The cinema is a great escape from the cold of a Scandinavian winter, and if you’re a lover of animation you’ll have plenty of chance to hide in light of the silver screen in Copenhagen come the end of January. VOID is a ten-day festival dedicated to the art of animation, be it feature films, short movies, music videos or even virtual reality or computer games.
This year will see the fourth edition of this niche festival, which is aimed at adults and young adults – but not children, despite its focus on animation. Screenings will take place mainly at Cinemateket (the Cinematheque) at The Danish Film Institute, but also at a couple of other venues in the city (the programme wasn’t released at the time of publication).
A meeting point for animation lovers, the art and its producers, VOID gives audiences the chance to watch animated features that rarely get shown in mainstream cinemas – with films touching serious subjects as well as humour. Individual cinema tickets can be bought, as well as discount tickets for several screenings.
